No spin for Baby John Burgess at Hills hotel lunch
Television and radio personality John Burgess will be heading for the hills on Friday, September 1. And he won't be travelling alone.

He'll be taking five double prize winners from a draw run by radio 6IX to Burgo's Bunch for Lunch at the Inn Mahogany Creek.

The bars will be open and the restaurant will be serving its regular lunch menu to locals and visitors alike who want to say hello to Baby John, who is best known for his long running role as host of the game show Wheel of Fortune.

Burgo will be hosting his own table at the Inn from 12.30pm to 2.30pm for the 6IX winners to enjoy a fully catered lunch and drinks. For other visitors to the Inn, there will be a special two-course lunch for $30 on the day including a glass of local Shiraz or Semillon Blanc or a middy of Feral Perth Local Ale.

There will be a choice of Nicoise salad with house smoked salmon or salt and pepper local squid with Asian slaw and chilli aioli or vegetarian frittata with grilled asparagus and Italian salad (gf) or Beef and Guinness pie with mash, mashed peas and jus. For dessert, choose from a trio of sweet things or traditional sticky date pudding.

The king of the airwaves in the 1970s and 1980s returned to his former radio station in April this year where he hosts the 6am to noon shift on Saturdays. But many West Australians will remember the man whose name is synonymous with the television games shows Wheel of Fortune and Catch Phrase.

On the first day of Spring, he'll be helping to introduce locals and weary travellers alike to the spectacularly refurbished Inn Mahogany Creek in the Perth Hills around a 45-minute drive from the city.

With a 170 year history, the Inn is packed with history, tasteful Mid Century charm and elegance. Now refurbished in Vintage Design, guests can relax by open fires or in the stunning garden setting and enjoy a contemporary bar and restaurant offering friendly service and emphasis on quality well priced local produce.

And Spring, when the Perth hills are ablaze with wildflowers, makes it a particularly great time of year for a visit for a refreshing beer or a reviving coffee. One of WA's oldest operating inns and offers a bar, bistro and lodge with tales of ghosts and a hangout for WA bushranger Moondyne Joe.

It was first established as a barracks to house patrols to protect travellers on the road from Guildford to York. These days visitors can choose from outdoor, courtyard, beer garden, lounge, bistro and bar settings.

An extensive and varied menu features fresh and local produce.
Everything is home made using free-range eggs, premium Margaret River beef, sustainable fish and local ingredients and provides good value for money.
